As a matter of fact, the 1701 and 1702 are JVC TM-13Us, if memory serves.
I've seen them in use at the medical school.

Not so much indistinct as the 1702's picture is more vivid. (No, I don't
think it's a matter of having the tint control too low :-)

For my money, the 1084 is the same way, but many people swear by them. I
like them better than the 1902 series, but I still prefer the 1702.
